This wine was produced from a single vineyard in Lowburn on the banks of Lake Dunstan Central Otago and handpicked in April 2016. The palate has a lovely core of Central Otago fruit seamlessly melding with a lovely balance of acids and sweetness allowing it to flow smoothly into a long lingering finish. 50% of the Pinot Gris was whole bunch pressed to extract only free run juice which was then fermented in stainless steel tanks. This portion contributes to the delicate and pure aromatics in the wine. The balance was foot stomped for a small % maceration. It was also pressed and fermented in older oak barrels contributing viscosity and texture to the wine. Collectively the process results in a wine providing a richness of palate and beautifully rounded and soft finish.
